Have Some Time to Waste?

Here is a list of names that I found on a baby name website. I went through the entire alphabet on both the girls and the boys list. Here is the exhaustive list of names that I like. Jared has vetoed a couple of the girls names so I removed them but he hasn't looked through the boys names yet. Let me know what you think. What are your favorites, what do you dislike. Here you go, it could be any of these...

I found these name(s) at BabyNamesWorld.com. The boy names go to Zachary and the girls start at Anneliese. If you have any questions let me know :)

Really? Out of all those just 3. Wow you're a tough crowd :) Jared's stuck on Anneliese and currently I think Quint is the highest for a boy but not at all certain on either. Ugh, it may be called #5. We always had a name we just loved before we were pregnant. This time we're clueless. They're all okay but none of them are "that's it! it's perfect!"

We have it narrowed down to...

Jonas and Ruthie

Last night we decided we really like Hazel Annaliese and Quint Nathaniel. Of course we still have 6 months to change our minds but we both really like those and feel really content with them.

Jeff E.- I really like Jonas but my only concern is the insane popularity of the Jonas brothers and how popular that name may become over the next year or so while they have their Pop Culture Reign. Just a thought.

You can see by my list I really like Ruth or Ruthie. I love names that are timeless and work regardless of the individual's age. Good taste :) You are still welcome to use Ryker! It's such a handsome name.

Jenny said...

I do like Ruthie. :)

I have no opinion on what you SHOULD name your child but having been down that path already and knowing the cruelty of children in general here is my opinion of the responses these name will get from others at different points in their childhood:

Asa - "asa a boy or asa a girl?"
Carson -Daily (the gay guy on a number of fashion shows)
Cooper - named after a dog
Duncan - same as above
Harper - "Harpoon the whale"
Jedidiah - "as in Clampett?"
Kingston - "He thinks he's the King"
Maddox - "Mad dogs"
Quentin - "your mama ran out of name's so she just called you #5?"
Quint - see above
Ramsey - "he thinks he's the king of egypt"
Sullivan -"Silly Van"
Darby - race track
Hazel - witch (as in witch hazel)
Heidi -"Where are your braids?"
Marilyn - Monroe
Scarlett - letter

Just my 2cents!

Luckily a lot of those references would be lost on a child born in 09' We thought about several names and ran them by the boys to see what they were able to come up with. A few were taken out of the list because of them. One good thing about homeschooling is they won't have a lot of the school room cruelty that comes with being mixed with lots of kids. Not that I would ever name a child to purposefully encourage others to make fun but at the same time a little teasing builds character. I was called things that had nothing to do with my first name. Carrot Top, polka dot, and with the last name Hancock you can imagine things that kids came up with. We are really hoping for a name that holds up through out their lives and is appropriate for a baby, toddler, young adult, as well as a professional and eventually a papa or g'ma.

How about Daisy? I just think that is pretty.

I like Daisy, too. And I love Quint Nathaniel!

love,

My only issue with Daisy is what if our little girl decided to take the economic world by storm and she was a great professional. I just don't think walking into a business room Daisy fits. I love it for a baby, toddler and even a sweet grandma but not for a young adult. I kinda feel that way about a lot of names that end in "ie" or "y". I would love it for a nickname for something else. Any ideas?

I like Asher, Zachary - I like the sound of Zachary Isaiah (one of the only reasons we didn't use that name is it's my brothers), Annaliese, Sadie

What about Ariel, or Carter Allen?
